5. The problem is that "allowed" isn't really in play

They have the power to do it.

As for "allow" or "scrutinized" - there's two ways to look at it.

1 - The state senate has the power to overturn the decision or make it permanent and fire Warren. It doesn't require a super-majority and republicans have control of the senate. Warren has been labeled a "rising star" in the state party and was recently selected to head up our "Safety & Justice Task Force". They have every reason to give him a black eye.

2 - State courts. You can certainly find a fair judge in FL... but every single appellate court and the state supreme court are almost unanimously republican.

So the best we can probably hope for is a local judge saying that the governor overstepped his authority - before an appellate court reverses the decision.
